Inauguration day

"But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions -- that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America." Barack Obama, Inaugural Address 2009
In his speech Tuesday, President Obama said America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.

I continue to be completely overwhelmed with emotion over our new president and the American people who chose him. I was tearfully impressed with his words during the inauguration and feel blessed to be witnessing history!
